In order to provide fast and efficient plan check services, we utilize in-house plan review performed by our International Code Council (ICC) certified Plans Examiner staff as well as consultant plan review agencies. Before a building permit can be issued, a plans examiner must evaluate structural integrity, construction details and provisions for meeting fire and life safety requirements. Plan reviews are performed on a first-in, first-reviewed basis and depending on the number of plans being submitted the review is usually completed within two to three weeks from submittal. In the event the submittal is incomplete or requires revisions, you may be asked to revise and/or resubmit plans for additional review.
Over-the-counter plan checks are routinely provided for basic repair and replacement work such as termite repair, re-roofing, HVAC change-outs, electrical service change-outs, window and siding replacement, water heater replacement, kitchen and bathroom remodels and minor demolition work.
